"From the Earth" is a collaborative photography project exploring alternative photographic processes where images are captured using only plant matter and the sun. Called "anthotypes", these images start as plant matter that is blended or mashed down into a paste or liquid that is then applied directly to paper. This paper is then layered with a photographic transparency and exposed to the sun, producing a beautiful range of color.

This project is a collaboration between the spring 2015 alternative processes photography class members, photography professor Rebecca Silberman, and was funded through an undergraduate research grant from the College of Visual and Performing Arts at James Madison University.
